Coloradans for Responsible Reform (CFRR) has filed a campaign finance complaint with the Colorado Secretary of State against Active Citizens Together (ACT), a 501(c)(3) organization.
The complaint alleges that ACT, a tax-exempt non-profit organization, was a Colorado issue committee that failed to disclose its contributions and expenditures. The complaint alleges that checks from the ACT bank account funded the petition drive that placed Amendments 60 and 61 and Proposition 101 on the ballot and that the checks were signed by Douglas Bruce. The complaint also alleges that ACT continues to fund the “yes” campaign paying for campaign materials such as signs and mailings.
Colorado law requires that an organization engaged in such activities must file as an issue committee and report its contributors and expenditures, which ACT has not done.
